When I open Gmail on chrome I get the following banner on it “Gmail is having authentication problems. Some features may not work. Try  logging in  to fix the problem”

Well logging in doesn’t fix the problem and I can’t find anything that does. This also happened some years ago, I don’t know how it was overcome then. I tried disabling extensions but that doesn't work, cleared cache still no luck

This doesn’t happen when I open gmail in ms edge. I suppose the answer is to use edge and dump chrome

I would try uninstalling Chrome, Restarting, and reinstalling Chrome.  I have had to do this on rare occasion to solve what seemed to be otherwise intractable problems after all else failed.


I have my serious doubts as to whether this is an infection rather than a glitch.  You could certainly download either Malwarebytes or Zemana and run a scan to see if any malware is detected, but I doubt it will be.
